Using the Staged Model Repository Framework

Leveraging the Staged Model Repository framework in your app is easy once you’ve created staged model repository implementation classes.

You’ll step through a quick example to demonstrate leveraging the StagedModelRepository interface in a staged model data handler. The code snippets originate from Liferay’s Bookmarks app and Bookmarks Entries.

  1. Create a getter and setter method to make a StagedModelRepository object available for the BookmarksEntry entity:

    protected StagedModelRepository<BookmarksEntry> getStagedModelRepository() {
        return _stagedModelRepository;
        target = "(",
        unbind = "-"
    protected void setStagedModelRepository(
        StagedModelRepository<BookmarksEntry> stagedModelRepository) {
        _stagedModelRepository = stagedModelRepository;
    private StagedModelRepository<BookmarksEntry> _stagedModelRepository;

    This instantiates a _stagedModelRepository object that the staged model data handler can use to access BookmarksEntry CRUD operations. Notice the setter method’s @Reference annotation. This injects the component service of the BookmarksEntryStagedModelRepository into the _stagedModelRepository object. The component service was created in the Implementing the Staged Model Repository Framework tutorial when setting the @Component annotation for the staged model repository.

  2. Call your _stagedModelRepository object to leverage its specialized staging logic. Now that you have access to CRUD operations via the _stagedModelRepository object, you can skip the headache of providing a slew of parameters and additional functionality in the local service to do simple things like add a Bookmarks entry. For example, here’s the old way:

    newEntry = _bookmarksEntryLocalService.addEntry(
        userId, portletDataContext.getScopeGroupId(), folderId, entry.getName(), entry.getUrl(), entry.getDescription(), serviceContext);

    Now with access to the entry’s staged model repository, updating an entry the data handler can use looks like this:

    newEntry = _stagedModelRepository.updateStagedModel(portletDataContext, importedEntry);

    The large number of parameters and UUID setter the local service method requires aren’t needed when leveraging the staged model repository, because the staged model repository abstracts these requirements away from the data handler. The _bookmarksEntryLocalService.addEntry(...) method is called from the BookmarksEntryStagedModelRepository class.

Great! You’ve successfully leveraged your staged model repository from a data handler!
